YJ AMC 258 6

Can you bolt up an older type transmission to a newer 4.2L or a 4.0L . If you could do that you could run a dana 300 T-case and a passenger side front axle. Can this work, and what is the width of a YJ axle?

Re: YJ AMC 258 6

this is tangent to your question, but there is a company that Makes a D300 "flip kit". Use their kit and you can bolt up a Dana 300 to your YJ.

I was thinking that if the YJ drive train is week that a guy could swap some scout axles,and run an older transmission and T-case,if it would bolt up with out to much trouble.

You can bolt up any tranny that was on a AMC 258/304/360/401 to the 4.2 and 4.0. On the 4.0 there will be a crankshaft position sensor (CPS) that is in the bellhousing, to adapt this to an older tranny you can get a kit (Hesco?) to re-locate it to the harmonic balancer.
